The race was held on Saturday morning, February 16, 2013. Proceeds support the Gloucester County Educational Foundation. The race itself was conducted by the Peninsula Track Club.The race was held on a challenging day with temperatures dropping from 40 into the 30s as rain started which occasionally turned to snow during the
run. Breezy conditions increased the weather challenge.
